Speaking after the Education Secretary's statement to Parliament, Scottish Labour's education spokesperson Iain Gray MSP said:

“It remains an act of supreme arrogance for John Swinney to continue to defy the will of the Scottish Parliament.

“The Parliament said in September that testing Primary 1 pupils must end, yet the SNP government continues to ignore that decision.

“The review reflects many of parliament’s concerns, including the lack of a clear rationale for the tests. I

“Parliament was right in September and it is still right today.

“The testing of Primary 1 pupils should stop.”
